PostSubject: Question/Survey of Changi Golf Club   Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:56 pm

Hi Folks!

Doing a survey to find out the interest level of golfers and how keen they would be to play at Changi Golf Club, and at what price? As you all know, its a pretty niche golf course being a 9 hole course which is played twice in a full round, albeit different tee boxes and/or different greens used on both 9s.

For example, would a flat fee of 60 dollars (inclusive of buggy & gst) be tempting enough for a weekday game? Or etc... ?

Thanks!

I believe if more care are given to make the course nicer, more people will definitely visit Changi Golf Club to play on the green.

The last time I visited was early this year with my wife, the fairway is still reasonable but the rough is scary; sure can't find your ball if it rolls into them.

If the price is set at $60 flat for 18holes, I find that it's pretty reasonable. Sure have a lot people go there to bask on the green.

Pricing the green fee at a flat $60 is reasonable as compared to their current promotion of $69.55 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Good training ground. Cow grass fairway. Quite a bit of elevation. But frankly speaking, I would rather pay a bit more to play mbgc.

Decent course for practice; but to note it is cowgrass. Not everyone's cup of tea.

I like it as it is a tough training ground. The greens and greenside roughs are now good to play.

If it is at $60 a round, why not?

aside to willytan, you have PM.

for me, this is a great place. 60SGD for 18 hole is perfect. But I would think that its better for Changi to be known as a great golf locaton for a 9hole course.
What I do find that can be improved is the parking for cars ....I use to park at the rocky road near opp the club .... if can improved the drop bag, that will be great.

well hopefully price isnt the only "lure" to play at changi. its also naturally a challenging course (due to the undulations etc like Keppel) and requires the better players so suck it up and not be too aggresive at times.

will let u guys know soon!

not likely! weekends are pretty packed at the moment, and the club usually organises monthly medals etc...

Changi is a good training ground. 
Maintenance is pretty decent. Only thing is, the workers tend to carry on working on the green while you are teeing off, on a par 3.

I like the place.
The course holds more challenges than it seems. Par 3s are long. And holes require course management.

I am up for a game if anyone is interested.
